Movie & Monthly Healthy Food Potluck

  • Nov 30, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Each month we have a different lively presentation, food demo, or educational talk about our health and well being.

This event is open to anyone who wishes to come.

We'll hyave a Movie showing this month, Carb Loaded, A Culture Dying to Eat, starting at 4:15.

Truly entertaining, inspiring, and educational.
Watch the trailer at https://www.fmtv.com/watch/carb-loaded

Required:

Your own plate, fork, spoon and cup.

A vegan, dish (per person) to share. 

Requested:

A vegan dish preferably without added sweeteners.

Optional:

We love to eat local, organic and home-grown foods especially.

In the past there have been demonstrations on how to grow wheat-grass, how to open a young coconut, how to make a delicious green drink, and more.  Come and learn, share and grow with us!

If you're not sure what to bring, keep it simple or look online for ideas.

If you're new to vegan cuisine entirely, consider bringing something simple, such as a sliced melon, or washed leaves of lettuce with a cup of chopped tomato and fresh-squeezed lemon juice in a small bowl with your favorite seasonings for dipping the lettuce in to.  (It's great when folks bring plain lettuce leaves with them.  It makes it possible to turn any dish that someone brought into a lettuce-wrap!)

This event repeats on the last Sunday of every month except holidays.  On holidays there may still be a potluck during the month, but on a different date.  Because meetup will schedule these automatically, it may actually show as happening on a Sunday that is a holiday when it is not.

    Really enjoyed this pot luck and thought the film was great. I did like seating at one long table better--you can talk to more people. Great job To you both!

    Hey Cameron, glad you're joining us.
    You can google vegan recipes using no animal products, raw or cooked. Keep it simple, you could look for recipes using ing. you have on hand ... like broccoli or carrots, etc. We try to avoid refined carbs, like baked goods, pasta, chips, and processed packaged food.
    But you'll be surprised how much there is to work with, based on fresh fruits or veggies.
    Feel free to ask for more help!
    See you then.

      Is a whole wheat pasta dish with veggies ok?

    It will be my first meeting. I see that bringing a dish is required, but I have no idea on how to make one or where to buy one to bring. Any ideas?
